I am tracking my husbands plane from Tokyo to Chicago and saw a strange flight path. What would be some reasons for this?

  • $\begingroup$ Closing this as OT seems harsh. The possible dupe that fooot listed is exactly the same question. I guess it's a minor semantic detail whether it's closed as dupe or OT, but I'd have voted dupe. $\endgroup$ – FreeMan Mar 27 '17 at 18:00

I don't think that is the actual flight path. Probably a software bug or faulty hardware.
